APC absolves leaders from Rivers violence

26 February 2016, 12:14Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced its leaders from the recurrent violence in the region.

Rivers State Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone, alleged there was a campaign against Senator Magnus Abe, and Member of Parliament Barry Mpigi, as well as other leaders of APC in Ogoniland, hence their names had been mentioned among perpetrators.

“We vehemently condemn the attempt by the Rivers State Government to use faceless persons to blackmail the APC by trying to weave and sell wrong narrative about the real security issues and circumstances in Ogoniland,” Finebone said.

“We condemn any attempt by some individuals, no matter how highly placed, to use misguided youths to cause disaffection amongst the Ogonis with a view to rendering the people politically unviable and irrelevant. Who is afraid of a united Ogoni?”

Finebone said in line with its position to be cautious and circumspect about security matters, the party had restrained itself from making hasty comments on the security operations by the Nigerian Army and other security agencies in Rivers State particularly in Yeghe, Gokana Local Government.
